The illustrations by Jon Apple pay homage to Eric Carle's caterpillar ones, they use the same colours, are very basic and retain the caterpillar mouth's circle bit taken out of each page. Now Apple could have used teeth marks or a human looking bite but I think the simple holes instantly conjure up the original tale being parodied as you read this version. None of the illustrations inside a gory, scary or inappropriate for kids of any age. My favourite is actually not in the story itself but instead on the back cover of a zombie sitting on a park bench drinking his human head's insides through a straw with a packet of French fingers dripping blood instead of ketchup in his other hand. Although you can get this as a Kindle book, for me the fun of this is in its resemblance to an actual board book so having a physical picture book is the way to go in my recommendation.
